What is a Block?
A Block contains configurable content that is displayed on a Canvas. Content can be images, text or a video, or it can be interactive features such as Live Chat, Q&A Poll, etc. There can be multiple Blocks on a Canvas. A Block type can be selected when adding a new Block in the Canvas, it defines what type of content is displayed on a Canvas.
Some of the Blocks are highly configurable and can be configurable as per their block type.
Once the Block type is selected, it’s recommended to name the Block, so it is easily identifiable when viewed alongside other Blocks on a Canvas. Ensure that the naming convention of the Block follows a standard practice as the name you give to a Block will be visible in reporting as well.
Once a Block type is selected, you can now switch to activate it, configure it and add automation.
The width of the block is defined as per the Flex it is attached to.
Each Block will automatically resize itself as per the Flex it attached itself and the width of the browser window
A Block can be made active or inactive. An active block is visible on the Canvas whereas an inactive block is not visible.
While each block type has specific configurable options, some common ones are the name of the Block, the title of the Block, visibility start and end time of the Block.
